questions to the audience. we'll go to the following order. sherazad and simon third and karen fourth. so kick us off. >> thank you. thank you, art. it is a pleasure to be here at cleaf's annual event. i will not hope not to put you too much into a gloomy mood. if you're trying to predict what is the next financial crisis, i think it is important to discuss the changing nature of these crises. 30 years ago, we had what we gnaw affection atly call the traditional type of crisis. only happens in emerging markets and contagion of these crisis was regional. so if brazil got hit, latin america got hit. effects in southeast asia were relatively safe. but in late 1995, sorry, 1994, early 1995, the world as we knew it changed. mexico crashed and something very strange happened. within three days markets in hong kong, india, hungary, poland crashed. we weren't expecting this and we most certainly did not understand what transmission mechanism was in place that was causing world emerging markets to crash just because americas cocrashed. you know when economists can't understand something

led by sister simone and the nuns on the bus have been vocal critics of the ryan budget which would cut spending of social services. republicans have been heavily influenced by the tea party movement in the past three years, and the tea party espouses of course that government should be far less responsible for providing the service. they believe that when the government provides social welfare it creates a culture of dependency among americans but i was struck that paul ryan use those words talk about welfare reform. so the american values survey asked americans whether they were more likely to agree that government policy and helping the poor served as a critical safety net or whether they create a culture of dependency where people are provided with too many handouts. so figure nine shows the percentage of americans were more likely to say that those policies create a culture of dependency. it's relatively few, only 32% of americans say social welfare policies create a culture of dependency. there is a gender gap here as well, not surprisingly. here we find 29% of women agree tha

simon, and i am the president of the mdm ndn. we are going to have a wonky discussion today. but we are very lucky to have rob shapiro, our good friend edward luce, who is now chief american published author about his time in india and has recently written one of the more influential or at least highly commentated -- we just feel very lucky that he took time out of his busy schedule. he is in colorado covering the election. many of you know rob shaprio has a long history of leadership here in washington. helping advise bill clinton in 1992 and eventually becoming the undersecretary of commerce for economic affairs in the second clinton term. bob and i -- we have been brought together. it is a subject we are going to talk about today. it is back in early 2005 when ndn was reborn as a think tank from being more of a political organization. i started calling people and visiting people and having lunch with people and try to figure out what was happening in the american economy. it was data that i just couldn't explain. no one did a better job that explains me what he thought was happen

-up songs for the various rovers have included "love me like a rock," paul simon. come fly with me, wake up little susie, the simon and garfunkel version. radar love, the theme from mission impossible and, probably my favorite, where is my mind by the pixies. [laughter] so the burning question is, who gets to pick the songs? >> actually, you know, i was only tangentially aware of that, and i recognize it from your telling it. i really don't know. so it sounds like a great talk for somebody -- [laughter] probably i would say it's jpl, within their team probably. >> okay. and we can tell from their dress code they're a wild bunch, so that explains a lot of the songs. the last question i know you are an expert in, and that is your own trajectory into coming into planetary science and enjoying it and living with it. and i can see you're still enthusiastic about it. what have been the high points and the low points for you in the world of science, and what keeps you enthusiastic about it? >> well, the whole -- my whole time at nasa which is now almost 15 years is a high point in my care

the funding differential that simon of lightly references at the same time they are playing a morally without the safety net that would save them meaning that market shock in the case of either operational, sovereignty or liquidity risk of a large institution would be worse. it would be lanham brothers on steroids. that's what scares me and why we need to go back to the liquidation of authority. could work in across borders attritions? does anything work in a cross border situation? not well to read about 80% of all banks offshore assets are held in the u.k. and that is particularly true for the wholesale oriented institutions like jpmorgan. they are operating in 70 countries but to what they've got in bulgaria is not systemic. maybe in bulgaria is. that is a different question. to chase and the u.k. it isn't. those are afterthought operations. that's why the u.s. and the u.k. are very fall along and what they called a crisis management group to resolve that aspect of cross border banking. is it done? no peery dividing durkan and i can answer your questions with a lot more con
